Biotech giants sue Hawaiian island for passing legislation to restrict GMOs
(NaturalNews) The "big dogs" in chemical agriculture are on a witch hunt to reverse a bill passed by the Kauai County Council back in November that sets reasonable restrictions on the cultivation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on the Hawaiian island. According to the Huffington Post, an unholy trinity represented by DuPont, Syngenta and Agrigenetics Inc. (an affiliate of Dow AgroSciences) has filed a federal lawsuit arguing against Measure 2491, which is intended to set buffer zones between schools and fields sprayed with pesticide, for instance, and requires companies to disclose when and where they are spraying their poisonous concoctions, as well as report genetically modified crops.

It's a county of Kauai ordinance we passed.

It really doesn't do a damn thing about their GMO activities, but it set a precedence for other locals.

Here on Kauai it is ground central for GMO seed stock production which really sucks. These assholes have no business even operating here in this unique environment.
